Christmas in July

It's been quite awhile since I've been able to blog here. What a crazy month and a half it's been! If you don't read my family blog we have been moving and with the move we lost internet access for about a month. It was awful LOL But, I'm finally back and have had a chance to make at least a few cards. I make Christmas cards for my dear friend who comes to stay with us each summer and here are the ones I made for her this year. I did 5 of each design. I finally got to use my new Mailbox set from PTI. Very cute set. Love all the sentiments. The embossing was done with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder.
The picture of this one didn't come out that well. I used PTI's Snowflake Serenade for the first time on this one. The craft paper is also PTI. You can't tell but the snowflakes are embossed with a glittery powder, added nice sparkle. The turqouise mat was embossed with my Cuttlebug Swirl folder.
I absolutely adore the shilhoutte blooms and nature set my CHF. These were just one layer cards but I thought they came out really pretty. Super quick too.

And I think this one is my favorite. I loved the design and I just love that bird stamp. (From Inkadinkando) The other stamps are from PTI and the sparkley embossed vellum was paper I had. The green is Spring Moss, PTI. I also Stickled the bird and berries with Stardust.
I plan on posting alot more again! It's good to be back.
